    I've got a lot of suits but I'm really happiest with these two.

    Hyperflex Amp (Thanks Matt) 5/4: this suit is way lighter, way stretchier, way warmer and way cheaper than my O'Neil Mutant 4/3. Great suit.

    Matuse Hoplite 3/2 Incredibly light and flexible, and really warm. Picked up on Giltman (another discount site) If you go with Matuse, size up, but the rubber they use is very lite, warm and flexible

    excel 5mm lobsta claws (drylock), these are toasty. my hands are completely dry for up to about 2 hours and have never gotten cold.

    Had 2 Rip Curl F-bombs but both had to be sent back multiple times due to the seam welds failing. Never do RC again. Switched to West Lotus and love them. Super stretchy and warm.

    I was gonna get a set of west mitts cause they had a velcro strap that went around the wrist which in theroy would work in keepin water out but how easy would it to get them under you sleeves.

    I go with O'Neill boots and gloves all the way. They have these little gaskets on the inside that allows warm water to flow into your hands and feet but not out. They rock!

    what is it with glove durability?! I guess the companies see gloves a such a limited market they really don't give a crap about quality control.

    I've got XCel 5mm lobster claw and 3mm 5-finger gloves (not the drylock) that have been great.
